Moving Toward Resource Recovery Facilities
Water Environment Federation
Resource recovery is an emerging societal need around the globe. Due to the ever-increasing pressures on increasingly limited environmental resources, it is critical that recovery of resources (water, nutrients, and energy) from waste streams be implemented. Moving Toward Resource Recovery Facilities is about moving away from waste streams and moving toward values streams. Providing an overview of the fundamental drivers for resource recovery from wastewater and presenting the basic case for resource recovery, Moving Toward Resource Recovery Facilities provides an overview of state-of-the-art technological approaches to resources recovery and provides general guidance on the applicability of recovery technologies for the cross section of facility types. This allows facilities to take steps towards recycling a greater number of otherwise lost resources.
